Something I Like

Posted on the 20 April 2012 by Irinastanescu
Recently I attended the live broadcast of Rigoletto from Royal Opera House. Great Dimitri Platanias! Voice, appearance, acting... everything. 
Getting back home I listened again to my all time favorite in this role, Leo Nucci and his Si, vendetta in the end of act 3. Act 3 is again my favorite. To my surprise (in a good way) there is a full length Rigoletto on YouTube with some of the best (if not THE best) casts possible these days. Those steady voices that make you feel butterflies in your stomach, the perfect balance between singing and acting.

Nello Santi conducting
. There are tens of full length operas on YouTube. Old recordings but also new ones (La Traviata and Manon from the Met) captured from cinema. This might not be fair to the singers and opera houses, financially speaking, but it's heaven for those who can be there but really love opera.
Have a great musical weekend!
